Android app unable to access location due to 'lack of permission' despite having full permission

Platform (Android, iOS, Website): Android ColorOS 13.0

App version number: iNaturalist 1.21.17

Description of problem:

Despite being able to access location normally earlier today, the iNaturalist android app has suddenly become unable to access location for any photographs taken in the app. A notice pops up whenever I try to find my GPS location stating that permission to access location is required. However, no changes have been made to permissions for iNat and the app still has full permission to access location data.

Looks like you’re using a pretty old version of the app, and this was an issue in some earlier versions. Current release is 1.29.18, I recommend updating the app the the current version.

Ah excellent, this fixed the problem. Thanks very much!
